Lynn Camp student receives national BETA award

A Lynn Camp senior has received a prestigious leadership award from the National BETA Club organization.

Brooke Green, president of the Lynn Camp BETA Club, received the John W. Harris Leadership award on December 10th.   The Harris Leadership award is named in honor of the founder of the BETA organization.  It was presented to Green during BETA’s Kentucky Senior Convention held at the Galt House in Louisville.

Green was one of 25 BETA members nationally to receive the award.  As recipient, Green received a certificate, trophy, and paid tuition to attend the Broyhill Leadership Conference to be held in South Carolina this July. The six-day, five-night conference challenges participants to learn, develop, and practice leadership skills that they will use throughout life.

Lynn Camp BETA Club sponsor, Donna Davis, nominated Green because of her effective leadership skills as chapter president for the second year in a row.  In her recommendation, Davis said that Green has presided over chapter meetings, delegated responsibilities, developed and implemented fund raising events, organized a formal induction ceremony for new members, and helped initiate a new recycling program for Lynn Camp that is already a huge success.

Green states that “it’s the small things you do that can make a big difference”.   She is the daughter of Donna and Danny Green.   She will be honored at the February 22, 2011 meeting of the Knox County Board of Education.
